About an hour south of Port Angeles, and into the Olympic National Park is Hurricane Ridge. This is a really great place to visit on a summer day. It’s easy to access (you can drive all the way up), and the views are breathtaking on a clear day. It’s open year round, but during the winter all vehicles must carry tire chains. From the visitor center, there are hiking trails that go deeper into the park.
